JB SMOOVE (Julio) is a gifted writer, comedian and actor who
entertains audiences with his unique brand of comedic funk.
His breakout role as Leon on HBOs Curb Your Enthusiasm has firmly planted Smoove
as one of the best comedic actors today. In September 1999, Smoove moved to Los
Angeles and landed a recurring role on MTV's The Lyricist Lounge Show, as well
as featured guest spots on The Chris Rock Show and Premium Blend. In June 2000,
Smoove landed his first big feature film role, narrating and starring in the
cult classic Pootie Tang with Chris Rock. In March 2001 Smoove co-starred in Mr.
Deeds, starring Adam Sandler.
After an impressive yet short lived season as a cast member on Fox's Cedric
the Entertainer Presents, Smoove moved back to New York City, where he landed a
writing position on NBC's Saturday Night Live. Smoove has been featured on
Comedy Central's Tough Crowd, Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza, on various SNL
sketches, and as a regular on Late Night with Conan OBrien. He recently wrapped
his third season on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and appeared as Manny on the series
Everybody Hates Chris.
Last year, Smoove appeared in the feature comedy Date Night, and earlier this
year had a co-starring role in Hall Pass, directed by the Farrelly brothers.
Upcoming is Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo, starring Matt Damon.
Smoove's unique comedic voice has been put to good use in animation. He
voices a role in the upcoming Ice Age: Continental Drift and in the new Fox
animated series Allen Gregory, staring Jonah Hill. Smoove has a development deal
at Fox to create his own series in partnership with filmmaker Shawn Levy, whom
Smoove met and worked with on Date Night.
Smoove is expanding his comedy empire with the launch of The Ruckus, a
website focused on original and branded comedy content.
